RAM DRIVER QUOTES
“We have a new Reese Towpower RAM this weekend. The guys at the Penske Racing motor shop were able to find us some engine improvements over the last couple of months and hopefully that’ll help our performance. We’re coming off a great momentum builder at Dover getting that breakthrough run that we’ve been looking for all year. Texas is one of my favorite tracks and the June race is one of my favorite mile-and-a-half races. It’s fast, it’s got a ton of banking and it’s a place that really rewards a driver that can take care of equipment and take care of the tires over a long run. ”
-- Parker Kligerman

RAM TALK
“We’re really looking forward to Texas. We’ll try to build upon what we did at Dover. For the race, we have to get our RAM where the driver can hold it wide open for a long period of time so handling does play a role in it.”
